Transfer Student

PTSC will be accepting applications for transfer students for the 2020-2021 school year until Friday, August 14, 2020 at 4:00 p.m.  To be eligible for transfer, the family must provide school discipline records for the prior 18 months at the time the application is submitted.  An application will be considered incomplete without this information from the previous school(s).  Incomplete applications will not be considered for acceptance.  The following criteria will be used to preliminary determine if the student meets the eligibility requirements for attendance.

The building principal and superintendent shall deny a transfer request based on one or more of the following criteria:

1.         The student was suspended or expelled for 10 or more school days in the 12 months preceding the request for transfer.

2.         The student was suspended or expelled for possessing a firearm, deadly weapon, or destructive device in the 12 months preceding the request for transfer.

3.         The student was suspended or expelled for causing physical injury to a student, school employee, or visitor to the school in the 12 months preceding the request for transfer.

4.         The student was suspended or expelled for violating a drug or alcohol rule in the 12 months preceding the request for transfer.

In addition, the building principal and superintendent may deny a transfer request if the student withdrew from enrollment under recommendation for suspension or expulsion as described in item 1, 2, 3, or 4 above in the 12 months preceding the request for transfer.

Disciplinary documentation provided with the application is subject to verification from the student’s official education record from school(s) previously attended either before or after acceptance, as applicable.  See application for further conditions.

PTSC has capacity to enroll the following number of transfers students by grade level:


 Application Procedure:

Download and print the application form for 2020-2021 school year.

Transfer Student Application Form

Download and print the Disciplinary Report Request Form and provide this form to the school your child is currently enrolled to request an 18-month disciplinary report.

Disciplinary Report Request Form

The disciplinary report should be dated and signed by a school administrator and should identify the reporting school.  The report should include all disciplinary action for the past 18 months and if there is no disciplinary action, it should simply state as such.

Applications and disciplinary reports may be faxed to 219-477-4834, emailed to or mailed to Porter Township School Corporation, Administration Building, 248 South 500 West, Valparaiso, IN 46385. 

Applications will be considered incomplete without the disciplinary report.

The superintendent will accept applications until the posted deadline.

After the deadline, the superintendent will review the applications and parents will be contacted with the status of their application.

If accepted, the school office will contact the parents to begin the enrollment process. 

If more applications are received than the number of seats posted, a public meeting will be called to hold a random public drawing for seat assignment.

Transportation for transfer students is the parents’ responsibility.

This is no “transfer fee”; however, all normal student fees will apply.

Please contact Linda Dusek at 219-477-4933, Ext. 1000 with any additional questions.
